Re: Best catamaran for circumnavigation

I realize this is an old thread, but it seems to have some sound advice for those of us with BIG dreams and financial matters in order. It seems that the biggest safety issue with cats is regarding capsizing due to too much sail area in heavy wind. Would the moral of the last statement be don’t get in a hurry; keep your sails in a bit and speed less than max for a margin of safety? All comments welcome!
